  1. home, residence, housing unit, dwelling unit, unit

  2. (in particular) flat, apartment in a larger building

Usage notes[edit]

Usually called "apartments (UK: flats) and other homes" or simply "homes" in English, including the media, except in official use. In official use, the term housing unit or dwelling unit (and their abbreviation unit) is more common. The terms residence, abode, dwelling, habitation, and domicile are rare, formal, or even misleading. The common translation of, for example, "250 asuntoa" as "250 dwellings" is usually misunderstood to mean 250 separate buildings.
